Wow! Oh I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to have recived this book. I have had that darnest luck finding any of Gaiman's full legnth novels...either they are checked out from the library, I can't afford them when I do find them, and I don't seem to find many copies on bookcrossing either. I have however read Gaiman's short stories and graphic novels and they are astonishing. This book is one of the books I have been wanting the most all year! :D I am just overjoyed! :D Thank you so so much for your kindness megtall!

Another wonderful book by Gaiman who keep impressing me, he is certianly my favorite author that I have discovered this year. I quite enjoyed this book, certianly very memorable for it's wonderful and well rounded characters. There was something missing however that kept it from being an instant classic in my eyes however...maybe it was just becuse that while it was a character driven story, Gaiman did have a tendancy to throw to many at me at once. You hardly got to get to know one before here comes three more, but overall it was a great read the whole way though. There were parts that I did see coming and others I wouldn't have dreamed in a million years. I adored the ending the villan met at the end, that type of event isn't something you see that often! I quite enjoyed Richard's story. It is not often than I really buy the reluctant hero types, but I found his story quite memorable and was thrilled at the ending, he grew and changed dramatically. The settings of this book also deserves a mention, they were astonishing...I guess I just love London and the concept of a whole other version of London existing just benith the one we know now was quite orginal.

Thank you so so much for sending me this suprise book! I think I will soon start at ray and spread the word of Gaiman to others.

I admit it, I actually moved this book to the top of the pile over a different ring book.... because I needed a great escapist fantasy young adult/adult read after a series of too serious (although all good) books... and it was a great decision! It has helped me forget being really sick this week as well as just overwhelmed with winter and work. It's a fine tale with a consistent tone, some villains who remain absolutely and grossly in character, twists and turns that come together as they should. Because I was always aware it was fantasy, even the bloody scenes aren't particularly bothersome. A satisfying ending to the nasty guys, a curious but good ending/beginning for our reluctant hero. The subway experience may never be the same! I am sending this fine tale off to the next bookcrosser on the list!

I wish I were more familiar with London so that I could properly enjoy this wonderfully descriptive and imaginative book. Having never been to London Above, much less London Below, I feel like I missed out on some of the nuances of the story locales. When I read fantasy books, it's much easier for me to imagine completely fictional worlds than to try to fit the fantastical into real-life cities, streets, and buildings. Nevertheless, I still thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters, and Neil Gaiman's writing skills.

I'll be contacting Ctychic for a mailing address so the book may continue its journey.

UPDATE 3/26/10: Ctychic has asked to be skipped, so I'll see if anyone else wants to continue the ray.

I liked the book and can see why many people really really love it. I branched out a bit with this ray and chose outside of my usual 'comfort area'. I have visited London in the past and I was able to visualise the incredibly imaginative Underside. I found it a sort of cross between Alice In Wonderland and any one of Dickens' novels...the characters were interesting but I found them a little one dimensional in personality if not in appearance...in stark contrast to the colour and vibrance of description evident in the the settings.
So, all up, I enjoyed it, thank you for including me in the ray, I have enjoyed reading something a bit different....

I loved this book! What a vivid story. It keeps you interested and eager to read what happens next. Richard is adorable as the sincere yet bumbling main character or as sothisdhampir said "the reluctant hero type". I also enjoyed the ending. This was the first Neil Gaiman book I read and I can't wait to read more from him. I'm so happy that I joined this ray. Thanks to grubsneerg for organizing it. :)

This was the first fantasy-type book I have read and did enjoy it for the most part. It left alot to your imagination,sometimes complicated and sometimes a very believable sci fi adventure. I do agree with grubsneerg that I wish I was familiar with the London subway system and different sites of the city as this would have made the book all the more interesting. Thank-you grubsneerg for sharing this book.

This is the 2nd (0r 3rd dependent on how you count things) book of Neil Gaiman's that I've read. I initially read his collaboration with Terry Pratchett (hence the counting thing), Good Omens, and absolutely loved it. From there I read American Gods and whilst I enjoyed it, I found it heavy going. This one is nearer the former in it's use of humour and the storyline has a good pace & zips along.

Richard Mayhew is an ordinary guy with an ordinary life. One night, on his way out with his fiance to an important dinner, he finds a 'homeless' girl lying wounded in the street. Despite his fiance's protests, he stops to help and ends up taking her home to patch her up & care for her. His life promptly unravels and he finds himself a 'non-person' drawn into 'London below'. Here he meets all sorts of wierd, wonderful and mythological people and beasts and has varied wierd, wonderful and strange etc etc adventures. Found it greatly amusing and flew through it, will be looking out for more Neil Gaiman from here!

BTW I believe the book was written after it had been dramatised (if you know what I mean), but I never saw the original on BBC. Would be interesting to see how they achieved it.

When I was little my ma used to read to me from Eleanor Farjeon's Nursery Rhymes of London Town, a lovely book that made the names that make London what it is into people. (King's cross/ What shall we do?/ His purple robe/ is torn in two...) It was a long time before I saw London itself, and so even to this day the London map in my mind is populated by these personages. Neverwhere is a book that gets this, that makes London a place of two layers, of a richly peopled fantasy world running beneath the surface. Dark and funny, with heroes and villains and swashbuckling, and a wonderful sense of history. My only gripe, really, is that this was an American edition, and so I was constantly being thrown off by pants and flashlights.

Other than that, this was a rather fantastic book, in every sense of the word.

Journal Entry 42 by deludeddaydream at Waterlooville, Hampshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, October 25, 2011

10 out of 10

Things I loved about this book:

1. The narrator - a sardonic character in his/her own right who weaves words into the most vivid of images and plays his/her cards close enough to his/her vest to keep me intrigued to the end.
2. Richard - this guy goes on such a journey, and it's a believable journey. He has a wicked sense of humour too which only really emerges as he starts to find his feet in London Below. The poor guy is dragged into a world he doesn't even know exists and flounders horribly for most of the book, but when the time come for him to rise to the occassion, he does just that.
3. London Below - what an amazing alternate reality. The whole time I was reading I kept thinking 'Damn! I wish I'd thought of that!'
4. The way Gaiman plays shamelessly with tropes and cliche. I imagine he had enormous fun writing this book. The Wizard of Oz references (the obvious and not-so-obvious) are highly amusing and satisfying.
5. The Marquis de Carabas - he reminded me of Captain Jack Sparrow. In a good way.
6. Croup and Vandemar - it's true; they have no redeeming features, but they are so funny in a macabre kind of way. (Does that count as a redeeming feature?)
7. The lack of romance - refreshing!
8. The ending - I shan't spoil it, but I think it was perfect!

Things I didn't like:
1. Um ... nothing, once I got over the use of words like 'sidewalk' and 'flashlight' instead of their British English equivalents! It seemed very odd to read about London in American English.

Thanks for sharing this book with me. I've PM'd the next BookCrosser on the list for their address. Will mail on as soon as I have it. x

Having read only one Gaiman book before this one, I had a clue of what to expect. What I most enjoyed was the strong characters and the way they were built on a need-to-know basis. The book was very centered in London, where I've never been. Therefore I must have missed 3/4 of the playing with language and places, but I think I got the grasp of quite a few anyway. He hasn't been praised in vain.

Neverwhere marked the first bookray from another BCer I took part in, and it certainly was a good start. The story hooked me immediately and I finished the book in a couple of (working) days.

Neil Gaiman is good, but I'm spoilt. Numerous Discworld books later, Terry Pratchett to me is the standard of what fantasies of this kind should aspire to. Thus, a 7 and not an 8/10, but an enjoyable 7 without doubt.

I've patched the book up a bit and am sure that with care it will make many more hops still. When it gets to the stage where pages start falling out, we'll just have to keep the bundle together and the numbered pages in sequence. No reason why a book like this can't regenerate itself like some characters in the story it tells. :-)

Sent to SerendipityN in Germany this morning. According to the rules of our postal services, the book was too thick for "letter rate" and had to be sent as a parcel (more than twice as expensive). So, I'm afraid it had to be surface mail. Expected duration: two months. Ouch.

Lovely Serendipity in Germany sent this my way. It arrived this afternoon and, frankly, I'm in awe. NEVERWHERE has been everywhere! I suppose the time is right for me. I recently read another Gaiman book, a picture book actually. I read it with pleasure--but didn't really get it until after I mailed it off in bookcrossing. After reading this, I will attempt to find the other bookcrossers in the ray. I will certainly treat this with care and hope it has several more trips to here and there and neverwhere.
